I've read the first six of the "Hilda Johansson" books so far and I find them thoroughly enjoyable. From a genre standpoint they're nominally murder mysteries but they're also well-researched historical fiction, with social commentary and a bit of romance thrown in. The characters are historic figures, real people, and others who probably didn't exist per se, but certainly could have.

To fully appreciate the books they might best be read in sequence, but each one presents a complete and satisfying story. I'm a bit surprised they've never been made into movies;

I have only read two books of this series, but I do like it. I especially like to read about the immigrant's life in the early 1900s. It's interesting to read about South Bend, Indiana's history and about society's classicism and treatment of immigrants. The spirited character of Hilda is fun to watch develop. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
  • Agagamand
A good book in a series by the author who lives in South Bend, IN where the stories take place. Especially interesting to people from this area that are interested in the history of the town and especially, the Studebakers.
  • The_NiGGa
As I currently live just north of South Bend, Indiana -- this novel was so interesting! Always good to learn more about the history of where one lives!
  • Hawk Flying
This story was good and complete, but seems like the author s still finding her style. The later books in this series are much better than this one.

Book received in excellent condition!

Five years ago, Mr. Studebaker went to Sweden to recruit workers for his American factory. Among those to immigrate was Hilda Johansson, who accepted a position as a maid. Her job allows Hilda to observe first hand how society treats foreigners. Though she is well aware of the social inequities in America, Hilda does not believe the anarchists are right in their efforts to destroy the current system.

When an anarchist assassinates President McKinley, Hilda and others fear the madness that could grip the working class. Soon a friend of Studebaker and a worker are found dead wrapped inside an American flag. Hilda decides to investigate the deaths especially since she was so successful in solving a homicide last year (see DEATH IN LACQUER RED). She has the added impetus to prove that her friend's brother is not part of the anarchist conspiracy that killed the President. Hilda also worries about her sibling who seems to be hiding something from her. With so much on her mind, Hilda does not realize that her inquiries are leading her to something very dangerous.

RED, WHITE, AND BLUE MURDER will appeal to fans of amateur sleuth mysteries as well as historical fiction buffs. The thought-provoking tale provides insight into the first few years of the twentieth century as the audience will feel the immigrant experience. Jeanne M. Dams brilliantly weaves the class structure and its impact on behavior inside the who-done-it. With a well executed mystery combined with the atmosphere surrounding the murder of the first twentieth century President, readers have another triumph in one of the better historical mystery series being written today.

It's September 1901. The country is reeling from the news that President McKinley has been shot. But of even more concern to maid Hilda Johansson is the fact that the assassin had passed through South Bend, Indiana within the last few weeks. Had he met with any of her friends? But when two bodies are found, one covered with an American flag, things really heat up in town. Is this the work of anarchists out to destroy America? Or are immigrants being unfairly blamed? Add to that the secret the workers at the Studebaker plant are hiding, and Hilda has her hands full.
This book is a fascinating mixture of fact and fiction. I was drawn into the time and place completely while reading. I enjoyed the Hilda character, an independent woman struggling to live in her time and social place. The story itself was very good. With several different things going on at once, it was hard to know for sure what was happening and who to believe. And, while I did guess the solution, I completely overlooked the clues that pointed to the ending. My only complaint is that the author's note really belongs at the back of the book.
This was my introduction to the Hilda Johansson character. I'm hooked on this fun mix of fact and mystery and will be looking for the others in the series.
